one of the girls because we weren't moving fast enough. whatever the case was. >> reporter: boston police surround the home believing the girl ages ten months to 18 years old were in danger. the person apparently extorting the cromwells was never inside the home and in fact boston police believe he called the cromwells teen-age daughter first and told her, her father was in trouble. she gave her mother's cell phone number as someone who could supply money . long and short of it we end ended up wiring what we could get our hands on which was $600. so this whole frame kind of came loose . police busted in the front door and found the girl hide nag closet . it was the police. they were digging on the door and we thought that was the guy trying to come in . simone is relieved her daughters were never in think real danger but wants to warn other people . i have been telling everyone if you see a number calling you repeatedly that you don't recognize just don't
>> reporter: that's probably the best advice. boston police say they are hear hearing about incidents like this more and more. they believe the people making the phone call are lifting information off of social media to make their threats more believable. live in boston, jennifer egan, 7 news . >> anchor: as we head into the weekend a last us are thinking about what's in store weather wise . >> anchor: i know everybody is saying a was chilly but i would take it and it's getting better . it's been one of those one terse where you have to have at least two different coats on stand by. the one, lighter one will be needed throughout the weekend as we see those temperatures rise to near 50 but flakes on the way first. we'll break it all down in the forecast coming up. ahead at 7 sports live from red sox spring training in ft. myers, we're going to introduce you to the red sox second biggest off season addition in craig kimbrall and how close did danny ainge come to make a deal.
nine below last weekend and now we're talking highs near 50. current temperatures though mid to upper 30's for us. 37 in boston. that temperature popped up just in the last hour or so. we do have some milder air that will be working in from the southwest and south. can you fire up the front here where those colors change? it's a warm front that's pushing in but ahead of it we're getting enough lift and enough mows tour to bring us some snow flakes because the cold air is in place at this point. bigger look there, bigger picture here. glides through southern quebec and through the next 24 hours and it brings us some milder air in the meantime. so running through the time line here we go with those snow showers, right around 10:00 or 11:00 p.m. it looks like two hours either side of midnight here. we get that with a i air come federal government in from the south but it's happening in mid layers of the atmosphere. this is melting the snowflake making more scattered showers a possibility of even sleet to
the cold the longest so the areas that will see the cold the longest will see the snowflakes fall the longest and that looks like the best chance to see a coating to an inch of snowfall but that's it. not a whole lot of snowfall that we're talking with before those temperatures get to 50 for highs tomorrow and then we can't rule out a possible pop shower for the afternoon. sprinkles though, rain sprinkles this is it for snowfall at least for this one a cotting to an inch more likely the north of the pike and also as you get near route 2 and not of route 2 a coating to an inch a possibility. there is a possibility for slick travel as we get into those wee hours of tomorrow morning. but i think by 7:00 a.m. most of us near 40 degrees and we keep that temperature going up, up, up into tomorrow. here is a look at the highs. mid 50's for some spots, not out of the question. although we do keep clouds with us for the better part of tomorrow and we're in for some more sunshine on sunday. that into the to be changed. sorry, wrong map of the rain
pattern as we get into next week while tuesday is dry for us, monday could be more of a nuisance for the morning commute rather than any problems of i think maybe a slow go could be the case as you see 4:00 a.m. some sleet, rain, snow mix and potential for us is a system passes by mostly to our south but we're going to continue to watch that. it's really the middle of the week when we get this pattern shift and we could get our storm track setting up just so that they are just sending these things at us so we were watching this one possibly for wednesday, but now forecast model are saying there could be another one just behind it for thursday. we still have to nail down all of those details. where, when, how much, rain, snow, the track exactly so we will keep an eye on it, continue to track that as we get through the next few days. 7 sports coming to you live this evening from ft. myers, florida on site with the red sox in spring training. today the first official day of
spring training of pitchers and calfers getting in light work and also offering us the first glimpse at the red sox second biggest off season addition. when our guys come in to work every day, they recognize that they are working through something individually but what we need to expect from all is to buy into our team conaccept . a team the red sox will luck a lot different in 2016p family on the mound with the additions of starter david price and closer craig kimbrall . everybody feeds off each other especially pitching wise. you have a few guys thriving and you can pick up other guys or try to help them out as a team effort . pat of the team concept involves adapting to a new position. something hanley ramirez is attempting in moving to first base. his third position in as many years . just get back used to it. we just have to get on the same page . ramirez indicating a healthy year in 2016 will aid
the field and getting him back in the good praises among fans in boston. if we do that, everything will be fine. i think it's why we're here for, what we get paid for and why we prepare ourselves and to win and lift that trophy at the end of the year. now the addition of craig kim federal it year shaking up the bullpen a bit. a group that's been anchored in each of the last three years both koji turning 41 on the reof this year's opener less accident of bail operations dombrowski shying off prospects in exchange for kim brawl. no mat where he ends up pitching farrell is confident didn't he will excel. he is the true definition of a very good pitcher regard regardless of if he started for baltimore for the first five innings or when he went to the bullpen in texas and ultimately came to us he has been a very good pitcher regardless of the role. he is a veteran. he knows himself and knows what
and we're confident that whether it's the 9th epping or earlier than that, he will pitch very well. >> anchor: in the mba one day after failing to close on a deal celtics president of basketball operations saying he came very close to completing a black buster deal near the deadline yesterday. a deal that would have likely included the brooklyn nets 2016 first round unprotected pickp meanwhile the celtics about on the floor tonight in utah doing so without david lee. the 32-year-old vet'd this afternoon this after 30 games in celtics uniform. his departure no big surprise. he appeared in only three games since christmas and did not see a minute of action in each of the past 18 games. in the bruins have the night off before closing out a road trip in dallas tomorrow night. that game coming up at 8:00. that's going to do it for us in
